Sierra Club Endorsed Candidates

Sierra Club is, and always will be a non-partisan grass-roots organization. That means our endorsements start from the bottom up. Our local group here in South East Michigan makes recommendations to the State Chapter which then move on to the National Organization.  In making endorsement decisions we consider each candidates’ environmental record and platform, our history with and knowledge of the candidate and the candidate’s prospects of making positive impact on the environment of our State.
